Creeker has received a submission that we would like to release immediately as it poses a timely intervention. Written by ex-members of Save Old Growth, it details a number of concerning internal dynamics of the group and draws attention to how SOG has simply re-branded itself as Stop Fracking Around, while continuing to engage in the same activities that has caused so much concern in land defense and radical communities.
This piece will be also including in the upcoming Creeker Vol 4.
Creeker Volume 3
As the rain finally returns and the temperatures drop, we would like to celebrate the change in season by announcing that Creeker Volume 3 has been released.
The variety of submissions over the series has meant that, like the Fairy Creek blockades themselves, each volume is many things. However, slight themes seem to have emerged: if Volume 1 was more celebratory and Volume 2 was more critical, Volume 3 is perhaps more reflective.
The newest installment in the series includes history, poetry, collages, analysis, and reflection, plus a whole section dedicated to the inspiring forest defense currently happening in Atlanta.
Work has begun on the fourth volume of Creeker and it will be due out in the new year sometime. Anonymous submissions are welcome and are due at the end of November 2022. Send to creeker zine at protonmail dot com.
Also check out The Creeker Companion Volume 2 if you haven’t already.
In addition, we are happy to announce that participants from the Elaho blockade of 2001 got in touch and have made a remastered version of their zine, which we are happy to host. Click here to see it.
Printed copies of all titles in the series are available at Camas Books in Victoria and Spartacus Books in Vancouver.
Happy Culvert Season!
The Elaho Zine
Elaho Valley Anarchist Horde – Journal of Sasquatchology
Print Version – You may have to print on lowest quality if using a laser printer to avoid printer memory errors.
Web Version – Slightly blurrier than the print version above.
This zine about the Elaho blockade near Squamish, BC in 2001 was a big part of the inspiration for the Creeker project. Previous online versions of the zine were either poor quality (blurry, etc) or missing pages. The versions here have been newly remastered from the original.
The Creeker Companion Vol 2
The Creeker Companion zines are curated to complement the Creeker zines with material that’s relevant to the Ada’itsx/Fairy Creek blockades, but much broader in scope. Volume 2 of the Creeker Companion samples various sources and includes essays, poetry and communiques touching on movement history, state repression, vigilantes, and much more. Both Creeker and The Creeker Companion may be of interest to anarchists and land defenders in general.

Creeker Volume 2
Creeker is a grassroots, anti-authoritarian zine series that aims to bring depth, variety, critique and continuity to the ongoing process of reflecting on the Ada’itsx/Fairy Creek blockade and related efforts. It’s intended for creekers themselves, land defenders elsewhere, and the land defenders yet to come. The newest offering in the series includes contributions of art, analysis, photography, history, personal reflection and poetry that were anonymously sourced from participants at the blockade. The writing features eloquently written, hard hitting pieces that explore the dynamics of autonomous forest defense in conflict with recuperative tendencies at Fairy Creek, and histories of radical, uncontrollable resistance in the nearby Kax:iks/Walbran and Elaho Valleys.
